Lots of things happen to us. Some are self inflicted while many are out of our control. When they are out of our control, why is it some folks seem to always be down in the dumps digging the hole deeper and deeper while others appear to remain optomistic rapidly climbing out of the same hole?
As I see it, each of us has a choice. We can feel like the entire world is against us and there is no hope or say "Things will get better. Tomorrow will be a better day." It is all in our attitude. We can either be a problem waiting to happen or a solution looking for a problem to overcome.
Each of us has the power to control how we think about situations. We just need to exercise that power, think positive thoughts and act on them putting the negatives behind us and then moving on.
